About This New Opportunity: The Health Education Leadership Program and the Leadership Circle are two new initiatives in the Office of School Wellness Programs (OSWP), in partnership with the Mayor’s Office, to support comprehensive health education in schools that serve middle and high school grades.

The Health Education Leadership Program provides middle and high school administrators and teachers from 55 schools with training, technical assistance, individualized support, curricula, and materials to provide students with quality health education, including sexual health education.

The Leadership Circle, composed of 20 high schools, will receive an additional level of support including funding ($1,500) for centrally purchased goods, services, and per session. Both groups work directly with experienced health educators from OSWP to become models of instructional and programmatic excellence, especially related to aligning health instruction with the Common Core Learning Standards and the Danielson framework. All participating schools will receive a package of materials valued at more than $500 (curricula, books, classroom resources, student materials) as well as free training and individualized support.
